GIT_TRACE_VERBOSE perhaps? It affects all trace output, not just
GIT_TRACE_PERFORMANCE. The tests would still have to disable it
explicitly, though, in case someone sets it in their profile.

However, IIRC conclusion of v4 discussion was that this would be
useful for all trace output [1], so I think it should be the default.
